Developed by master lapidary Munsteiner and licenced to German diamond-cutter Freiesleben, these cuts take pure diamond crystals from Canada and Australia and impart a minimum of abrasion for maximum effect. Tests show their reflectivity as up to 20% greater than a brilliant cut!
The square CONTEXT cut has only eight facets, yet glows with the radiance of the earth’s core, an insight into early creation.
SPIRIT is a round cut, having sixteen upper facets and a further sixteen - offset by half a facet - on its under surface. Christine was dazzled whilst setting them.
Christine has exclusive New Zealand access to these stones and is presenting an exhibition of work specifically designed to demonstrate their exceptional properties.
We look forward to your visiting Christine...The Artist Goldsmith on Waiheke to view - and buy - this collection of exclusive, adventurous, hand-made jewellery. These stones are quite remarkable and offer a whole new appreciation of the diamond.
